According to Ki Young Ju, CEO of CryptoQuant, capitulation by an unknown mining pool was responsible for the latest market dip.
The miner who has produced 51 blocks over the past four days may be capitulating, reports Ki Young Ju. The 51 blocks produced by the mining pool came with a reward of 637.5 BTC, 9% of the total over that time period.

This miner sells only when price is high
Meanwhile, since May 20th (but not including today) the largest unknown mining pool — it has the fifth biggest hashrate — has moved 12,571 BTC out of its treasury. As Ki Young Ju explained to Cointelegraph:
They [mining pools] don’t move Bitcoins unless they decide to sell it. Each miner has a different wallet management system. Major mining pools send BTC to exchanges periodically, and the largest unknown mining pool, they only move their Bitcoins when the BTC price reaches the top.”

Today, the same mining pool has moved several thousand BTC. However, it may be that this miner is not capitulating, but just took the opportunity to liquidate its inventory at a price that it found attractive. As with all Bitcoin price movements, it’s not entirely clear what is behind it and whether this miner caused the dip. But it comes on top of the reports that show that miners are currently selling more Bitcoin (BTC) than they are generating.
Inefficient miners are hurting
Obviously, since the halving, block reward has been cut in half; however, the actual production has suffered even a greater setback due to the falling hashrate rate and an increase in the block time interval.

Many less efficient miners are at a crossroads now — should they permanently stop production or persevere until either the price climbs high enough to make up for lost production or until they receive newer more efficient mining equipment.
Nonetheless, experts surveyed by Cointelgraph believe that in the long run, the shakeout of inefficient miners will produce bullish outcomes for Bitcoin.

The Democratic Party-controlled U.S. House of Representatives has introduced draft legislation that includes the creation of a digital dollar to be used for stimulus payments to Americans due to the COVID-19 pandemic. House Democrats Want Digital Dollar for Stimulus Payments According to a version of the draft bill dated Sunday (March 22, 2020), the U.S. Congress is seeking to include the creation of a digital dollar to enable stimulus payments to Americans affected by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The proposed digital dollar is, however, not a cryptocurrency but runs on a digital ledger. An excerpt from the draft legislation defining the terms of the proposed digital currency reads: “[It] is a balance expressed as a dollar value consisting of digital ledger entries that are recorded as liabilities in the accounts of any Federal Reserve bank; or an electronic unit of value, redeemable by an eligible financial institution (as determined by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System).” In addition to the digital dollar, the proposed bill if passed will also mandate banks to create digital dollar wallets for…Mar 24, 2020
Final Fantasy VII demo footage was uploaded to YouTube. Corroborates rumors of a demo from late last month. Videos feature gameplay including a boss fight. While most were busy celebrating our planet’s latest revolution around the sun with merriment and mirth, an unknown leaker was busy uploading footage of the rumored Final Fantasy VII Remake demo to YouTube. Final Fantasy VII Remake Demo Footage Late last month, PlayStation Network data miner site Gamstat picked up on what appeared to be files linked to a PlayStation Store listing for a Final Fantasy VII demo. With art assets and a download file size, this looked like the real deal. We awake this morning to find that the demo is nothing short of a certainty, barring some extremely unlikely and elaborate ploy courtesy of enterprising trolls.

From the footage, it seems the YouTube channel or an unknown third party was able…Jan 1, 2020
